5 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Just your basic Blu-Ray/DVD reader/writer. No frills and no extras.

Does its job, reading at least. See below on writing.

Seems reasonably fast.

I got it on sale cheap. Well worth it at that price.

Cons: None really. I knew in advance what to expect. It's bare bones.

It won't let my UltraISO alone write to DVDs (Win7). But that's not a surprise. Probably will require Nero or something of the kind.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect to watch just any Blu-Ray movie on this without added software.

For my own purposes I'm reading, not writing to BR at the moment. It's doing well in that respect.

Soonish I'll see what it takes to make this thing write BD's. I don't have the right software in that box yet and don't know yet how it'll perform.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value; Works Great!

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Works with BDXL-YAHOO! An added bonus will write once and forever on Blu Ray M-disc 1000 year archival discs. Easy Installation, plug and play, Windows 8.1 Pro recognized the new drives immediately. Can't beat the value for under $35 bucks on sale, I bought 4 of these for some of my computers. Reads and writes to CD, DVD, BR-RE, M-disc. All in one drive.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Even though Blu Ray discs, DVDs, and CD's are going the way of the dinasour, there is currently no other data storage type that will last you 1000 years like a Blu Ray Mdisc. As far as will there even be any Blu Ray drives around in 1000 years, I don't know.

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Good drive, fast BDR burning.

Cons: It doesn't come with Power DVD. It doesn't come with any software. The description makes it sound like you'll get Power DVD with this drive, but you don't.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Drive

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: Great, solid drive. Really quiet while reading or burning. 14x speed is not that slow unless you're writing the xlBD 128gb.

Cons: Does not come with playback software. If I knew that I now needed to spend another $50 to $100 on average to buy playback software, I would have bought a more expensive OEM drive which 99% of the time included PowerDVD or the equivalent. The lack of software is really why I took one egg off.

Other Thoughts: Unless you already have blu ray playback software or you're using this drive for burning purposes only, this drive is useless. Also, its a cheap source for a blue laser head if you're into building DIY laser pointers.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not play Blu-Ray videos

This review is from: LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

Pros: It plays DVD's well and was cheap.

Cons: It does not play any Blu Ray movie no matter which media player I use. When I buy something, I expect it to work.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to watch blu rays videos with this, it will not work. Save your money and buy something else.
